There are some things you see in the news that you can't help but laugh at, some things you can't help but feel empathy and pity, some things sadness and then a story catches your eye and you can't help but just shake your head. When I first saw this I figured that maybe the story was written as a smear against the secretary of state of Colorado, had a biased angle or was taken out of context.....well from where i'm sitting the story does seem biased a little bit but I think if I was writing about the fact that the very men and women that are overseas protecting our rights and liberties as we speak will not be getting the chance to vote/have the ballot sent to them to protect against fraud, I would have a few more harsh words for Mr. Secretary. Does that region happen to be an area that votes highly democratic? Yes. Is Mr. Secretary a Republican? Yes. This is just something to mention as a side note but the fact of the matter is yes, we do need to protect the integrity of our voting system but just taking away those 64 servicemen+women's ballots is not the answer. Period.
